Innovation Lab Workshops – Cultural Credit Available!

Sign up for one of our Innovation Lab Workshops, where you can learn about how all the exciting tech in the Innovation Lab applies to your life and studies! Learn about 3D printing, 3D scanning, VR, and much more – plus, you can get Cultural Credit!

Spots are limited, so be sure to sign up early via LibCal. Click here to sign up!

The event will be held two more times during the semester, at the following dates and times:

  • Wed November 20 at 3 PM
  • Tue December 3 at 7 PM
(Note: only one cultural credit per student, so don’t sign up for more than one time. They’re all the same event.)

Get a FREE BOOK with the duPont-Ball Book Club! (UPDATE: Waitlist only)

The people have spoken, and this semester’s Book Club book will be I Shall Wear Midnight, by Terry Pratchett!

The book club meeting will be held in the library on Monday, November 11th at 6:30 PM, so please do not sign up if you will not be available to attend this event. The meeting will feature discussion, food, and cultural credit.

We have fifteen copies of the book to give out to the first fifteen applicants. All you have to do is email with the subject line “Book Club” to sign up! You will then receive instructions on how to retrieve your book.

I Shall Wear Midnight is a novel of Discworld. “As the witch of the Chalk, Tiffany Aching performs the distinctly unglamorous work of caring for the needy. But someone—or something—is inciting fear, generating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches. Tiffany must find the source of unrest and defeat the evil at its root.”

Vote on the Fall duPont-Ball Book Club book!

The duPont-Ball Book Club is returning this fall, and you get to decide what book we’ll read! Take a look at the descriptions in the poll, then vote for your favorite here. The winner with the most votes by this weekend will be available for free for the first 15 people to sign up for the book club, who will then come to the library to discuss it later in the semester!

If the poll doesn’t embed properly for you, you can also access it here. Voting ends Friday at midnight!

Library Hours for Hurricane Dorian

During the upcoming weekend the library will observe the following hours due to Hurricane Dorian:

  • Friday 30 August: Regular hours,  8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • Saturday 31 August – Monday 2 September: CLOSED

The library will reopen whenever the University deems it safe. This will depend on a variety of factors, most notably whether or not the library has power. A new announcement will be posted here on the website when the date of the reopening is known.

Please follow all University and NHC advisories about the storm, and stay safe!
